The man known for Mississippi River cruises in the Quad Cities has died.

 Joe Schadler owned and operated several restaurants and other businesses, but according to his obituary, for 30 years, his focus was on the river.

He operated the Queen of Hearts riverboat and in 1998, brought in the Celebration Belle, which he operated with his son. The non-gambling riverboat is still cruising the river today.

Joe Schadler, of Andalusia, Ill. was 74 years old.
